The purpose of this document is to guide ABA provider organizations in developing critical response plans to maintain continuity of care for patients with ASD during the COVID-19 pandemic. This document offers providers, payers, and families guidance on administering ABA assessment and treatment services via both synchronous and asynchronous telehealth modalities to ensure ethical and quality care is maintained. Recommendations for evaluating the risks and benefits of telehealth options in order to develop an individualized service delivery approach for each patient are provided to ensure safe, effective telehealth delivery of ABA services.
